Out of favour Newcastle United centre back Lubo Satka is understood to have joined Slovakian club FC DAC 1904 on loan for the remainder of the campaign according to the Chronicle Live.

The 21-year-old Ilava born defender is yet to feature for The Magpies during the Rafa Benitez era and the player is thought to have returned to his homeland to enjoy the prospect of regular first team football.

Satka has made just one senior appearance for Newcastle United which came in an FA Cup Third Round tie with Leicester City back in January 2015.

The centre back started his career with former Slovakian 1. Liga side MFK Dubnica before moving to Tyneside as a 16-year-old. Satka graduated to the senior squad at St James’ Park but the youngster has found breaking into first team a real struggle.

Last season, Satka spent a short spell on loan at Sky Bet League Two club York City where he made six appearances however The Minstermen ended the loan deal early with the player failing to help the club fight off the threat of relegation back to non league football.

With Satka having gained a number of honours for his country on the international stage up to Under-21s level, the player is clearly one for the future and Newcastle United will hope that the defender’s loan return to Slovakia may help in his long term aspirations with The Magpies.
